That escalated quickly.
A video of a cell phone exploding in CeeLo Green's face blasted across the Internet Saturday night; hours later the singer revealed it was a publicity stunt and apologized.

No, this is not a shady iPhone advertisement against Samsung Galaxy phones, but a clip deigned to introduce CeeLo's next musical persona.
“What you saw today was a clip from a smaller video that we were shooting for a new project I'm doing called ‘Gnarly Davidson’,” Green told fans via a Facebook Live video.
He went on to apologize for terrifying people into thinking he was dead and confirmed he was "alive and well."
This year is weird AF.
